Me neither TBH, but black looks cooler.

Fucking Guitar Parts Depot went under, anyone know a good place to get official Schaller trem springs? Yes, I need official Schaller, because I am a snob. If they are like $6 for three I'll probably go for those over the FU ones.

I put pieces of cut bandana under my springs.


Springs love bandanas.

Foam + duct tape = silence. I do it to every guitar, plus some foam behind the nut. Even if you don't hear the spring noise, do it anyway and you'll hear a noticeable tightness.

Foam! Is all you need. But If I was ordering new springs for any reason, I'd order noiseless ones just to try em

Ordered four sets.

FU can suck a dick for their blatant price gauging on USPS shipping though. $12? 12 springs in a padded envelope costs $4 tops, and those fuckers don't even go the extra 35 cents for tracking IIRC.

Seriously,

SUCK. A. DICK.

Its not like the profit margins are small on fucking springs either. These are probably like 2 cents each to make.

You still ordered them, right? What is their motivation to lower the shipping price, since you just paid it? :lol:

what cheap noiseless springs? grab a piece of heat shrink tubing and insert your springs into it. Apply hot. Problem solved.

Older ESP guitars came with this :D

Best of all, you can by the tube in a variety of colors!
